I'd buy it in a second if it wasn't so far away. Even as an empty shell. Not too crazy about the drop down deck. Seems like a lot of extra weight for what amounts to a tent, but still cool.

At $300, even if it is gutted, it would make a good utility trailer with the opening back. Who ever got it, they got a good deal.

Proud new owner of the Apeco Small World

I am the new owner of the Apeco Small World from the dayton craigslist! I finally got it up in the driveway and am in the first stages of giving it a complete overhaul. I am moving to the Yucatan peninsula in May and will be living in it full time for probably 1 year and teaching English. I have SO many questions; I have never owned a trailer before and this one is both unusual and in need of lots of repair. Right now, we have started gutting the interior (the walls & ceiling were completely insulated, lots of heavy wood built-in stuff and the fold down back door is sealed shut; one of the owners was using it as a office in the cold). There are issues with the base frame and the tires; I will take it in to my mechanic-tire guy next week to get the low-down on those issues but I am SO excited about the camper! It totally fits my personality and I am hoping to give the interior a livable but Star-Trekkish look! For $250, the guy threw in this crazy propane stove/grill/sink combo and a fridge.

I will be on here quite a bit over the next few weeks with questions! Any advice would be great!

Rachel, Congrats, I think it is great that you are going for a Star-Trekkish look. The first thing I thought of when I saw pictures of your trailer was a shuttle craft from that series.
Are you planning to have the back open into a tent, like the original design, or do you have other plans?
You will find that we are very hungry for pictures. Don't be shy about it being in less then stellar condition. Before photos are just as interesting as the after photos.
Welcome to our community. We, as a group are very willing to offer advice, and moral support on your project. Live long, and prosper.

I totally want to open the back up and use it. I don't believe the original tent structure will be found but I hope to rig something up; it will be HOT when I am using it (and buggy) so some sort of 'screen porch' will be rad. The shelf and bumper will have to be removed.

The inside look at the fold down back door after the insulation and weird wall covering mostly removed. We will tear out the styrofoam, outlets and conduit Monday when the weather will be a little better.
